    Jaap is an exceptional diviner. His readings are detailed and thorough. I often refer to him as "the hard headed Dutchman" because of his no nonsense approach and intolerance for those who appear to be "stuck" in tradition. Yet he makes Ifa easy to understand and apply. And contrary to his fears that your Babalawo would not want you to read this book, both my Iya and Babalawo encourage me to read and gain as much info as possible. Back to the book, I often pick it up and randomly read a reading. I'm sure it is helping me understand Odus more and helping to provide greater access to my on intuition. I'm looking forward to initiating soon so I find this all very helpful. I often pray for Jaap and send him good vibes. I pray he finishes all the volumes to the Odus soon so I can have the complete set. (and my Baba disagrees with the order he has written then, but that's minor (to me) and I get why he has done so. New initiated will appreciate the alpha sequence but is... More > it like learning the alphabet beginning with K as my Baba says?) Nonetheless, I appreciate this hardheaded Dutchman and his commitment to Ifa and his thought provoking essays which are included alonh with detailed readings. He is truly blessed and one of a kind. This book I believe will be beneficial to the novice as well as the most experienced. It will certainly help elevate the readings you do for yourself and others.< Less

    At last a comprehensive book covering the basics of Ifa divination without some slant aimed at converting or browbeating a newcomer. It encompasses years and years of research and practice by a master of the craft. Useful in fact even for those who use other methods of divination. I have hoped for some text like this for years and treasure this. It is a much appreciated tour de force. Waiting not so patiently for each of his forthcoming books on each individual Odu. Five of those down and eleven to go.

    A very easy to read, plain-English, no-nonsense, easy to master IFA oracle system devised and explained by an author with years of experience as a diviner. It is perfect for beginners to IFA, who cannot immerse themselves in study abroad, and also avoids imposing on such fresh minds the many cultural viewpoints invariably forced upon Westerners who seek traditional initiations into IFA, be they in Africa or the New World.
